“ At the end of the day, help me to be grateful for the people I have met, the things I have moved, the circuits I have restored, the signals I have maintained and the false partial activations I have repaired. Remind me to leave the bulletin in the lead locomotive, to secure the reverser and to leave the cab clean for the next crew. After I mark off, give me restful sleep - help me to mark on tomorrow with renewed vim, vigor, and a sense of purpose. At the end of my run, I hope to meet the Superintendent and shake his hand. I hope to hear him speak the words, 'Well done, good, faithful, safe and dedicated servant.' I hope to see many of my colleagues and friends who made my journey possible, who have enabled me to see many wonderful things and places along the way and who have helped me arrive safely at my home terminal.”
